Wind Wire: Repower launches Swedish venture

SWEDEN

Repower has made its first entrance into the Swedish market with a 6MW order and the launch of a subsidiary, Repower Systems Scandinavia. The 6MW order is for three MM92 turbines for the Klagerup wind farm being built by Swedish developer HS Kraft. It is scheduled to come online in late 2011. Repower Scandinavia will open in Vasteras, 100 kilometres west of Stockholm. Speaking about the move, Repower chief market officer Per Hornung Pedersen says: "Sweden is an important market of the future for wind energy. With the Swedish government's concrete and ambitious goals for the expansion of renewable energy sources, the simplified planning and approval process, and the joint certificate market with Norway beginning in 2012, there is a supportive regulatory framework for wind turbine projects."
